As other reviews have stated if you walk barefoot in the rooms with carpet your feet will get dirty and black. The cabinets in our particular room had what appeared to be fuzzy mold on some of them. I had to move the little drawer nightstand in between the beds because my charger fell and there was food behind there.... More

First off, the guy in the office, Brent (?), was friendly and informative. Gave us LOTS of great info on area restaurants. Our room was basic, but fine. I'm not a "prima donna" who has to have the best of the best -- just want a clean, comfortable place to stay! The beds, pillows and sheets, I must say, were... More

Cute motel on beach. The parking lot leads to the sand dunes. In need of major updating but clean and safe. Friendly , good service. No king size beds, coffee makers and the towels suck. Loved the area . The hotel is in a great location. Easy walking to reataurants and bars.

If you are looking for some fancy upscale resort, keep looking. However, if you are looking for somewhere clean with a great staff and reasonable prices that is close enough to walk to the pier and surrounding restaurants, this is your place. Rooms are clean and staff is willing to do anything asked to help, but they don't bother you.... More

It has everything you need for a nice, relaxing beach experience. The staff is pleasant, helpful. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. I asked for a ground floor and a kitchen. It was complete with coffee pot and toaster etc. No problems there. I needed a larger knife, the office was quick to oblige. Staff kept the room... More

I met a friend for five days, four nights. When we made the reservation we understood we were getting a second floor oceanfront room. We ended up with a first floor room and listened to the adults and children above us run races and move furniture all hours of the late night and early morning. This is an older motel... More

Nice oceanfront but......I would call it shabby. Really run down and old but perhaps for the price it is okay. Very family oriented, not loud or rowdy. Kitchen poorly stocked in terms of cutlery, bowls, etc. No ice trays, and nothing felt really clean. Beds were good and the shower was excellent water pressure which is a delight after being...

Sweet little family-run motel I return to year after year. They recently revamped with new IKEA furniture in the rooms. Great location right next to the pier/restaurants/etc. Oceanfront rooms come with a private deck, two rockers, and a fabulous view. Clean, pleasant, and family friendly.
